UCI (Unión de Créditos Inmobiliarios), an entity specialising in sustainable housing finance, has moved its headquarters to the Visionary Building, an office building in Madrid designed by the studio of architect Rafael de La-Hoz. The InmoCaixa property, located at Calle Amaltea, 32, is located in an area of expansion and business projection, near the Méndez Álvaro station and the M-30, and has more than 8,000 square metres distributed over twelve floors, of which UCI occupies 4,000 square metres from the first to the sixth floor.
The new UCI headquarters is a building committed to sustainability, with Energy Efficiency Grade A and LEED Gold certifications, and is based on WELL building strategies, focused on the health and well-being of the occupants. It has a high-efficiency envelope, photovoltaic panels and measures to reduce water consumption.
UCI's new offices in Madrid: flexible and "greener".
The building's design is unique, with an offset core for open, flexible spaces, and offers infrastructure and services demanded in modern workspaces, such as connectivity, acoustic comfort, LED lighting systems, efficient air conditioning and air renewal, as well as smart lockers and furniture.
The headquarters respond to UCI's needs, with the aim of being perceived as an excellent place to work by its talent. The offices are composed of 13 large work rooms, an agora, kitchen, breakout areas, and all the decoration has been made with sustainable materials.
UCI integrates environmental risks into the company's overall risk management, with specific environmental controls and a regular assessment of the consumption and emissions generated. Its commitment to sustainability is reflected in preventing pollution, improving energy efficiency and reducing CO2 emissions.
Ángel Aguilar, corporate director of Human Resources at UCI, says: "In Visionary Building we have converged the needs of the company and our teams in a workspace in line with our hybrid work model, featuring collaborative, modern and 100% environmentally friendly spaces."
In the area of Human Resources, UCI has achieved two important recognitions: it renewed its Great Place to Work seal for the fourth consecutive year and won an award as Best Employer Brand in the second edition of the Brands That Love awards, standing out for its transparency, responsibility, accessibility and commitment to the integration of ESG criteria in its business strategy.
